A good friend has started a SaaS company - I'm really excited about what she's doing and the vertical she's in, and have done some work for her already (and have done a lot of masterminding with her - my background is customer research & marketing).
We'll be talking about me formally becoming a founding member and receiving equity in exchange for deliverables. At this point, she and her co-founder will not be seeking outside investors, and will grow organically.
I've spent four years at an early stage startup and loved it, and know I want to continue in this world (and start my own company soon). I know very little about equity, but I'm excited at the opportunity to get an inside look at growing a startup.
I'd love your best resources for learning more about this kind of equity, structuring deals like this, and just any other thoughts or advice you might have for me at this point!
